St. Albert Transit (StAT) is the public transportation system in the City of St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, which is located only about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) northwest of downtown Edmonton. Scheduled bus service consists of local circuits within the community and express commuter routes to Edmonton. The city owns and maintains the vehicles but the drivers are privately contracted from Diversified Transportation.
Handibus is the accessible service for those who cannot use regular transit buses. They operate within the city limits or provide travel to Edmonton for work or education purposes. Customers must be registered to use the service and all trips must be booked ahead of time.

In 2014, St. Albert Transit (StAT), as part of the overall City of St. Albert, underwent a logo and branding changeover. As of April 2014 the new branding is prevalent on almost all vehicles and transit facilities. StAT's new Handibus vehicles display the new colours and branding and the existing conventional vehicles will be changed over as budget permits and through vehicle attrition.
